Which cards can I use with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Paradise DLC?

Best answer: All of them! Before the 2.0 update that recently came to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, only characters who appeared organically in the game could be summoned. Now you can hang out with whomever you please!

Don’t like making vacation homes for random villagers you find on the beach? Don’t worry; if you have the amiibo, you can build vacation homes for the characters you want. Players can use amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, including both cards and figures.

In the new Happy Home Paradise DLC, players can summon characters after unlocking the amiibo scanner to build a vacation home specifically for that character, without having to wait for them to show up on the beach.

Which villagers can I invite?

Regular villagers, like the ones that become your neighbors on your own island, can be summoned via amiibo after around seven homes have been completed. Series 1 to Series 5, the Welcome amiibo Series, the unique Sanrio Series, and amiibo Festival cards can be used to summon villagers.

You’ll be given the same task and furniture requests you would have received if they had shown up on your beach. If you accidentally call a villager who’s on the beach already, don’t worry! They’ll still show up.

What about special characters?

On the other hand, special characters like Isabelle and Tom Nook are classed as VIP clients and cannot be summoned until you’ve completed around 20 homes. Special characters can be summoned either via their amiibo cards in Series 1 to Series 5 or by scanning their corresponding amiibo figures on your Joy-Con or Pro Controller.
